RAYMOND — Superintendent Tina McCoy and Director of Technology Kevin Federico wish to share information about a health-screening app that families and staff will use during the return to full in-person learning next week.
The district announced last week that students will be able to return to in-person learning five days a week starting Monday, April 19. A fully remote learning option will be available for those who desire it. More information about the reopening can be found here.
Students and staff will be required to screen themselves for symptoms related to COVID-19 before the start of the school day and will be asked to do so using the new PickUp Patrol application. Using this application, families and staff will be able to complete the daily screening and report if they or their student are showing symptoms. All parents/guardians should have now received a welcome email from Pickup Patrol and can follow the instructions in the email to create their accounts.
The app will ask users yes or no questions about themselves or their student, and let you know based on your answers whether or not that individual should attend school that day. If a student or staff member is told not to attend school, they will be advised to call the main office to report their absence and receive further instructions.
This information will be shared with district nurses and school administrators, allowing them to keep track of students or staff who have been screened or will be out. Screenings through the app must be submitted prior to the start of school day.
Additional information on the application and how to access it from your smartphone can be found here.
